Calgary Chapter News
Spring 2012 News - PAL Calgary
PAL Calgary has been struggling of late. Reports out of Calgary indicate that most members expect a period of dormancy in which to rekindle enthusiasm and commitment. After all, the belief in the necessity of the PAL idea has not changed, though there is disappointment in the lack of progress towards establishing some affordable accommodation in the city
However, it must be realized that a physical lodge is not a necessity in carrying out PAL’s objectives and that setbacks are normal occurrences in the history of every Chapter.
We all hope the rebuilding and refocusing of Calgary Chapter mentioned in the last issue of Palingenesis will happen quickly.
Winter 2011 News - PAL Calgary
PAL Calgary has been struggling of late. Board members have been very disappointed about the lack of progress regarding any meaningful movement towards some affordable accommodation. The current PAL Calgary Board has need of discussions on initiatives to move forward by seeking out new board members.
Talk is going around that PAL Calgary will be going into a dormancy state. The gist of the thinking is that someone or something needs to reignite the vision.
At the recent AGM it was decided that at this time the remaining board members will continue the work of rebuilding our website and actively seeking out new influential board members with experience and business acumen.
On a positive note, Alberta Theatre Projects dedicated the opening night of the Wizard of Oz to PAL Calgary under the theme of "there's no place like home." Awareness & $398 was raised for the cause.
